Violation Issued Against Chevy Chase Nursing and Rehab

3400 S. Indiana, Chicago
FINED- July 22, 2003
Chevy Chase Nursing and Rehab Center was fined $5,000
for not properly supervising a resident who left the
facility and walked to his home, which is more than
seven miles away, in temperatures that were below 30
degrees F. The facility was not aware the resident had
left until his wife called to notify staff of his
whereabouts. During their complaint investigation,
Department surveyors learned the resident, who had a
history of cutting off his electronic monitoring
device and of attempting to leave the facility, was
able to leave through the front entrance, which was
not alarmed or monitored between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Six days after returning to the facility, the resident
managed to elope again.
